ARLA Inventories - what does it mean?

ARLA Inventories, formally APIP Inventories, is a training, examination and membership that demonstrates to landlords, lettings agents and tenants that a level of standards is adhered to. 

“A properly prepared and comprehensive inventory sets the scene for what is provided by the landlord at the start of the tenancy. It therefore plays a significant role in protecting both landlord and tenant.  A detailed inventory will help avoid disputes, whilst any such dispute that does arise about missing contents or condition of the property at the end of the tenancy can be more easily resolved.” 
Chris Hamer, The Former Property Ombudsman
